CARISMA 2019

6th CARISMA International Conference on Medium and High Temperature Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells

CARISMA conference series are well known to the fuel cell community engaged with components, catalysts and membranes that operate even at higher temperatures. Prof. Deborah Jones has initiated these, following a european collaborative project. The conference covers most aspects related to Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells with a particular focus on MT and HT-PEMs.
